Given the number of times she’s posed for revealing photos, Megan Fox doesn’t seem like the shy type, but that’s what her former “Transformers” co-star says.
For months, there’s been speculation about why Megan Fox was replaced by model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley in the third installment of the “Transformers” franchise, and most of it centered around her prickly relationship with egotistical director Michael Bay. Now “Transformers” star Shia LaBeouf has revealed what really went on behind the scenes to the Los Angeles Times. “Megan developed this Spice Girl strength, this woman-empowerment [stuff] that made her feel awkward about her involvement with Michael, who some people think is a very lascivious filmmaker, the way he films women,” LaBeouf said.
“Mike films women in a way that appeals to a 16-year-old sexuality. It’s summer. It’s Michael’s style. And I think [Fox] never got comfortable with it. This is a girl who was taken from complete obscurity and placed in a sex-driven role in front of the whole world and told she was the sexiest woman in America. And she had a hard time accepting it. When Mike would ask her to do specific things, there was no time for fluffy talk. We’re on the run. And the one thing Mike lacks is tact. There’s no time for ‘I would like you to just arch your back 70 degrees.’”
Well, it’s easy to see why Bay is directing films aimed at teenage boys and hasn’t been nominated for an Oscar lately. I’d bet Megan would have no trouble playing a sexy role—given the right director.
